MID MONTH CHECK IN
It’s now the mid of September and things are finally starting to calm down on my end, so I am happy to say as I write this I am curled up in my own area/thing with Anubis, the book-hating cat, and a twitch stream on in the background. I’m living the life.
SO, SEPTEMBER, how have things been? Let’s see how my TBR Jar has been going
1. WOMEN AND POWER – MARY BEARD
A SHORT BOOK
This is a two speeches compiled into a small book about women, feminism and how these things relate to womens speech, rights and power. It was interesting to see how the current events and opinions on womens rights come from the Greek and Roman times. This was obviously a quick read at 150ish pages and was pretty good.
2. DARKDAWN – JAY KRISTOFF
A FIVE STAR PREDICTION
I won’t lie, this book WAS a five star prediction, I had high hopes based off the first time books in this series and by page 150 I really wasn’t feeling this novel.
EVER THE HUNTED – ERIN SUMMERHILL
THE LOWEST RATED BOOK ON YOUR TBR
I’M CURRENTLY READING THIS !!
and I haven’t started/gotten to
IN THE AFTERLIGHT – ALEXANDRA BRACKEN
CONTINUE A SERIES
So, I’m at the mid point of the month, and I’ve SORT OF done three of the four challenges for this months TBR Jar. I’m actually really happy with this because I wont lie, I haven’t really been in a reading mood this month.
Darkdawn got me all kinds of slumpy so that around the 7th, I found it hard to pick up a book! BUT, I have read two other books, at that time that really helped
3. TECHNICALLY YOU STARTED IT by LARA WOOD JEAN
It’s a cute contemporary novel told in texts with Bi and Demisexual main characters. This was heartwarming, fun and super easy to read. It definitely helped with the reading slump I got into.
4. SORCERY OF THORNS – MARGERT ROGERSON
This was given to me by a lovely friend, and I was excited to read it, but apprehensive. When An Enchantment of Ravens first came out, I was excited for it, but ended up DNF’ing it because it just, wasn’t for me. I am SO glad I gave this one a go though because it was a nice simple fantasy tale that made you feel comfortable and invested.
5. COLD STORAGE – DAVID KEOPP
This was a freebie pick up at a work event. I was actually REALLY excited for this one due to the beautiful cover, and the fact that the author is the screenwriter of Jurassic world I believe. However, this lacked a wow factor and a sense of terror. It was just a fun okay read.
Statistics wise, I’ve read 5 books, and 9/15 days total.
If I can keep this up, there is a chance I can get eight or so books read this month!!!
Tell me how your reading month has been going
